nice man, congrats!
Guys heads up, got to nicely wake up to see my account go into the red. Pay close attention to how much you spent and how much is in your account. The hotel is adding charges and fees.
0 · February 27, 2013
Gay, good thing the only thing I really spent on the hotel was the food.
Also, let's hear it for the winner of the fanfic contest: Ryan Homme! Spread the word guys ;) Hey Ryan, how about a link to your fic since they never actually posted it anywhere at the disaster... erm con?
0 · February 28, 2013
Sure, why not! No one said that he lost
0 · March 1, 2013
Hey guys this is Knuckleshy as you can tell from my icon and as you may have seen up on EQD this morning I am going to be checking in on you guys. Any word on the cost of everyone's charges for the hotel bills and possible dent we have made so far as far as the musicians who preformed out there and how much there is left so for the latter I kinda need to hear from TAPS if possible.
The con in itself was great. The organizers - not so much.

I was so glad to have had the opportunity to attend my first MLP:FiM Convention! Even when it came to the whole system of rooming with Bronies I've either never or barely met before, it was such a nice and well-kept experience. Going to the convention really gave me so much more to appreciate about the people who work on the show (VA's and Staff), along with being a supportive fan. I'd never imagine I'd be given the opportunity to meet a big chunk of the cast, let alone mingle with them casually.
Now regardless of the good things, I will admit there were some downfalls. The first to start off was the whole fire alarm incident, which ended up ending one of the VA panels early (I actually found it hilarious more than suck-ish). Then there was the Private Dinner where it was unorganized (no assigned seating as stated on the site). Then there was the reorganization on Sunday which threw quite a handful of things off (minus autographs).
Other than that, I still say BEST CON EVER!
0 · February 26, 2013
and the whole thing getting shut down early and all the bronies double charged for their rooms and none of the talents "Covered" rooms being paid for. lol
I have been staying in close contact with my bank, and with all said and done I am only being charged the original amount promised for my room with the basic room deal that the convention offered.I obviously have no idea if this happened for everyone with single-person rooms, but things somehow either didn't reach this far down the totem pole or it was only the fully comped rooms and the super-big advertized limited # room deals, not the small basic room deals.
Well... that was quite an experience.
1 · February 25, 2013
With no con to compare it to, i cant say it was bad or good. I did have a good time with meeting several of you guys, and of course more bronies from other areas. Looking forward to more meets in the future, and definitely for EQLA. Hoping to put together a NLR soldier cosplay before then.

It was the worst event I have ever been to. The community was it's only saving grace. All those poor people who are out hundreds and the ones who are our thousands from it make it the worst event ever.
Our very own Hank Lugan purposing to Andrew Francis (Shining Armor) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1D1kkM52fK8
Through the chaos I had fun. Friday and Saturday were awesome. Sunday, not so much.
OH. MY. GOD. Was that, or was that not, THE Best Con EVAR?! It was so much fun and I met so many cool people and to top it all off it was organized and everything ran so smoothly! I especially enjoyed how absolutely none of the panels where interupted by alarms or anything like them! Also the lack of alcohol abuse was definitely a breath of fresh air, as opposed to the rest of the strip! Booze? Yucky! I can't WAIT to go again next year! <3
I like the part about the extra security everywhere and the abundance of staff.
Beside the fact that Sunday was a total bomb, I actually had a fun time with meeting bronies I knew & new bronies, meeting VAs I haven't seen up until this weekend, and swagging it up at the vendor hall.
It's a shame how things went, but at the end of it all, I believe the good outweighed the bad for this weekend.
I had a good time but getting ripped off 270 for yhe hotel is beyond annoying....
I really didn't know what happend on Sunday. I was on the Vegas Strip and went to the Air Force before coming back and everything was shut down early I guess around 5 ish?
I can't help myself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epfq5DqyQec
I am interested as to what problems were at the con.What happend?
I'm wondering the same
From word of mouth: they ran out of money and were significantly in debt by the second day. They couldn't afford to pay the travel or appearance fees of the show guests, musicians, and agents they invited out, nor could they afford to pay the hotel however much they it cost for the venue space. As a result, the hotel closed down the convention early, some of the talent jumped ship early, some people got kicked out of their hotel rooms early, and they needed to start a donation drive to get everyone home.
Yeah. It was pretty chaotic.
Weekend pass did not go to full use then. ouch
Worst con I have ever been to in my life. There are only two reasons I didn't give it 0 stars and that's the fact the VAs' and the community was great.

Leaving town now, so i should be in vegas about 11.

Have fun ponies
0 · February 21, 2013
Umm, sudden problem, guys. It's likely my friend won't be going to Vegas and can't give me a ride to the con. Any open carpool spots? D:
0 · February 19, 2013
Yucaipa, CA :I
1 · February 19, 2013
and thanks. '^^)
Oh damn... Short notice on that one :S
Fully planned on 8 people going to be staying in hotels and all of that. You sure you can't get your friend to take you?
0 · February 20, 2013
He said he expected sales commission from work, but things haven't closed in time for this weekend. Said he'd just be a pain if he was able to take me, since he
'd have to keep the trip very short.
I can prob help you out. I am leaving Friday morning that cool with you?
Also have space in our room for 1 more.
I think we'll be able to pull it off after all. Sorry for the alarm. Thanks so much guys anyways. I believe I'm still with Chris for room and board too.
Yes you are. I'll text you the info when I check in on Thursday.
1 · February 20, 2013
Okay, the number I usually give people is a soft-phone for work. Use (909)[masked] instead.
Alright everyone listen up.
This is what I got going on. I got a villa on the strip and getting confirmation tonight and latest tomorrow. The rate I will charge everyone is $20 and the villa can hold up to 8 people. I have myself, Peter, Daniel, Hank, And Eric that were wanting a room. If anyone else wants in let me know. The villa is at The Polo Tower so it's about a 15 min walk or a 2 min drive there.
For carpool this is what I know from all various sources XDDaniel ad I are working out were we will be taking a van, or if not ill be taking my truck there. Peter should go with Ryan because if I'm having to drive I have to drive a bit away to pick up Daniel.
I'll confirm this with Ryan, and if we take the van we can take an additional 3 people.
1 · January 25, 2013
yay a plan! ^>^
0 · January 25, 2013
also if it too hard to pick me up i can get dropped off along your route to be pick up :P
Can you bring me and my roommate on board for.. well, board? xD Drive is fine. But room x-x)
Cool! I tossed myself up on the carpool sheet, so then Christian, Peter, Hank and whoever else can go ahead and put their names in. Also, that sounds awesome for a room! If we need more beds, I can grab some inflatable mattresses.
Need to really get ahold of Hank. At the monet I won't add my villa to room sheet because I'm still working out details. Tomorrow is the latest. Peter will get a ride so that is good. Tomorrow everything will be worked out I think :3
Almost positive I'll need a room. Pretty sure I can drive myself/offer rides if need be.
Alright, if Hank confirms officially, I have my Villa filled.
People that will be staying with me.
Peter, Daniel, Hank, Eric, Kage, Kage's unfortunate non-brony, and Anfernee.
Just got confirmation, so private villa is a go :D
Cool just $20 /night correct?
No, $20 for the whole stay. If you want to pay me more that's alright too :3
we should hit the buffets!
I will pay you all the money.
0 · January 26, 2013
New update, the we are going to actually be staying at the Riviera. Got two rooms. Prices will still remain the same.
0 · January 27, 2013
i once had to walk that distance along the strip one time becuse i got seperated from my sister so we had to walk back to circus cirous parking structure... ah memories
i got to see the sexy dancers tho :L
Cool beans! Yeah... I stayed about a mile or so away for EQLA, and after the first walk there and back, I ended up just driving and paying for parking anyways (the mind was willing, but the flesh was soft and bruised...)
The polo tower is next door to the hilton grand vacation club, right? Thats where i will be staying
Yeah, but this all situation is moving to the Riviera it seems...
0 · January 28, 2013
Yes, I actually called in a favor to either get me a room at location or someplace close. Though I at first got an ok, my friend discovered that he need to be present, so opted to get me the rooms at Riveria.
Makes things easy anyways, so I didn't complain.
How will the drive over be going?
0 · January 31, 2013
Montebello is a bit far for me, but if you can make it out to the inland empire, there is still plenty room in my minivan!
I don't actually live in Montebello that's just a weird thing that happened when I joined the Meetup group. But I'm in Irvine, so I'll probably have to drive out to you anyways.
if that's the case, you can always leave your car in my garage if you wanted to
0 · February 1, 2013
This plan is still a thing right? If it is I'm going to say I won't be taking my spot in the room until Friday.
0 · February 11, 2013
Yeah, the only difference is that it will be at the Riveria Hotel (Con Site).
0 · February 12, 2013
I knew that. Also, this means I won't be needing a ride.
Hey, since I won't be arriving on the day everyone else is, I'll probably need a phone number or something so I can get in contact with someone when I do arrive. So I'll know what room to go to and all that.
Totally forgot those existed, sorry.
I wish there was a way to turn off notifications on mobile. I'm sad everytime I see anything Unicon :<
Considering leaving before the roosters crow on Friday morning, to get there for early badge/swag pickup and opening ceremonies. Good idea/ bad idea?
Planning on arriving late Thursday to settle in. Friend of mine wants to visit Vegas, so we combined the two.
0 · February 17, 2013
dis shiznit be mad bros
0 · February 16, 2013
Hey guys I had a brony that was riding with me drop out. So I have space for somebody that needs a ride/room. We booked a room at the Rivera.
0 · February 14, 2013
Sure what area do you live in?
Planning on leaving Friday morning
I need to stop at 29 palms before Vegas anyway. If your welling to put money toward gas and help pay for our room you're more then welcome to come with us.
I realize that
0 · February 15, 2013
We have a few people here now! Come right now!
Sorry this was for the new member potluck
Any LA/long bch area bronies still needing a ride/room?
i will be going to this and cant wait to meet some of you on this site. (i cant carpool as my cars a 2 seater with the passenger already taken.)
Alright everyone listen up

hank that was my idea all along, psycic man
I hope to see you all there.
Hey guys! I am totally going to this and also driving from riverside! If anyone is interested, give me a reply. I am going to try and get a room somewhere maybe. But for now I have no place to stay so if someone has a spot for me to sleep somewhere that would be cool! If not, I will probably get my own and then let people get in on that.
0 · February 6, 2013
Alright sweet, I got a room for myself so no need to worry about that. Turns out a friend of mine may or may not be coming, so if he does Ill go with him but if not I may take you up on your offer.
Have room for two more? Ideally near Anaheim. Anypony?
I still have a few seats. Anaheim is a little far, but if anyone wants, they could drive out to the inland empire and leave their car in my garage :)
Welp my friend can't go so If I can get a ride that would be awesome
0 · February 13, 2013
Sure man, I still have plenty of room! If you want, just go ahead and put your name down on the carpool sheet
Just curious to know if anyone from the North Orange County area is willing to pick me up on their way to LPU, and also on the way back. Of course, I'd pay for gas both ways. I live in Anaheim, by the way.
1 · February 9, 2013
Same here looking for a ride from Anaheim , willing to pitch in for gas
I live in Oceanside but could get to Anaheim easy enough. Anypony?
I know I talked to each of you via text, so I think we're good there. Plus, for anypony else, I have one more spot in the car, so let me know in the Carpool sheet if you're interested.
@Brett If you could get to Anaheim for when we leave that day, that would be perfect for both Louis and I. What are your plans for returning though? Still fine with arriving in Anaheim or would you need to be dropped off in Oceanside?
I can get to Anaheim, As for getting back I'll end up walking ;_; No. There's trains and buses, I'll figure it out.
Im performing so yeah I'll be there :3
1 · January 30, 2013
Awesome, will be cool to see you perform again :D
Every one here should get Skype,
0 · February 10, 2013
As I am new here, was just curious as to if there is any particular meeting spot or persons I should be talking to. I will be coming into town, Han style. I will be there from Friday to possibly Monday. Using a family timeshare at the Hilton right up the road, so obviously not in the same hotel as the rest are.
Hey everypony! im a brony from Argentina and will be at the convention on friday only, i will be with a band across my torso with the argentinian flag and the name of our group of bronys here "mlp argentina", hope to meet somepony there cause i will be going by myself :P
0 · February 8, 2013
And if you plan something on thursday i maybe going :P, have to convince my parents to let me go to a meeting with lots of strangers (even though i already did that 3-4 times here)
viva la patria! Hope to see you there man, we'll have to have a round of mate over truco... and ponies of course!
.Woohoo! I'm going! Cant wait to see you all there! :) gonna be leaving after work that Friday and will be in town in the evening.
I have slots available on the roomshare sheet. Please check it out. :)
Hurry, ponies. It seems rooms go back up in price Sunday.
Bwah! Why couldn't they push that back a week at least? ;~;
Just check the current sliced up rates on the sheet. As long as I have ponies confirmed for paying their slot by or at check-in, I'll reserve the room today or tomorrow.
i put my name in your thing becuse i have no conformations on any thing yet i am going, i think im carpooling with Christian Dobson,
I'll give time for anypony wanting to nab $25 sleeping bag / floor space and reserve /lock the room tomorrow.
I've decided to jump on board with Christian's roomshare plan.
*sniffle* my birfday is coming up but I wanna gooooo my parents said nooooo T^T
defuq, where you live ill kidnap you
o-oh okie... i'm in SoCal... hehe >.<
i would say find a way to get there, then tweet or what ever and some one would let you crash,
Huh tweet what though? ._.
He means some form of social behavior associated with sorting out room and board. call someone, email someone, tweet your problem, etc..
Hmm, its gonna be a pinch covering a room. Anypony still needing roomshare? Me and one so far. Two queen beds. I don't mind giving mine up and taking the floor so long as you can help cover room cost.
How are you planning to get to Unicon? I ask because myself and a few others are ironing out the details.
I am getting a lift from my roommate. He's not a brony, but is all for going to Vegas, so driving.
Update: Alright, currently have 4 people total planning on staying in the room, so 2 more bed spots remain. As I've said on the sheet, the more people that come, the cheaper it is for everyone.
Thanks to EQD for letting me know this, the prices of the rooms will go up after January 27th, so I'll be sure to book the room before then.
As a side note, I'm currently in transition with work/school, but I'm confident I can go to this event still, just not absolutely 100% sure. I'll be sure to let those who are affected know as soon as anything may or may not happen.
Also, as a side question, is anyone willing to pick me up that lives near Anaheim? If not, I'll arrange travels myself and for those who may want to carpool with me instead.
0 · January 17, 2013
...and the spots are taken! Those who have snagged a spot will receive more information from me very soon.
0 · January 18, 2013
Facebook me or text me.
Talking to reception, though. They say after 4 guests in the room, they start adding fees.
I can see that, but it's typical for things to be less stringent during cons and even for trips to Vegas. I've been there 3 times with more people than what we reserved for, and I had no issues with the hotel. If things get rowdy, I can see the hotel having more of a reason to exercise that right.
i only have $400 to go. is that enough?
0 · January 22, 2013
If you're able to split a room with someone, I'd say you have enough with some money left over for merch.
i just bought my tickets and i think i figured out the badge, just need to figure out room and a ride...
whats his full name?
lol math, i can get my own room at theese rates
We can communicate either via text or email.
Cell # is (909)[masked]Email is [masked]
0 · January 23, 2013
From the looks of it, Peter is going with me and we are going to grab a room. Now to get that poster so we can represent XD
Ryan, if any cancel let me know. That way we can all save money on gas XD
now we just need to iron out the details
also im going to be hungry tomorrow, we should do lunch
Alright, now I need Eric's and Hank's contact info so we can get a room worked out. I can care less if I'm on the floor or a chair, but I'll pay my percentage to a room.
Alright, so heading out with Ryan. Means I can take down myself from the carpool if that is the case.
Myself, Peter are confirmed for the room. I sent an email to Hank, though I wonder if they both will be going together.
Just got word from Daniel. He will be going and I'll work with him also to getting room for him. (Means we will have 5 people in room, which means a very cheap rate for everyone :D) Now the question is, will we have room? In my opinion I can deal with a 14 hour flight in economy, so its no big deal with me.
0 · January 24, 2013
Well that means I will be driving then, which isn't that bad. I'll take Peter and Daniel, but room will be the same.
i actually have a van that can seat 7... it might make it but it might die on the way... i have to see about fortifying its cababilities
* Keystroke raises hoof * I'm going... (\(^ç^ \
yes i will be there one way or another
Strippers in my hotel room. be there.
0 · January 21, 2013
Ok, really considering going now, just need to know what people that live locally in Anaheim are willing to come along/pitch in for gas/room and such. If I get a good turn-out, I'll post on the respective carpool and room sheets!
0 · January 9, 2013
EDIT: I decided to purchase a full weekend pass as the prices change tomorrow. So yeah, I could serve as traveling accommodations near Anaheim and also split the cost of a room, so let me know here!
Well me and my cousin/camera man has a ride there but we do need a room
Question in regards to rooming. If I were to arrive on the night of Friday like at around 11PM, would I still be able to maintain the spot I'd claim if going? Since I'm on a strict budget, I was thinking of going with the $20 full stay deal (not confirmed, but in planning).
0 · January 13, 2013
@Louis If you have no other options, PLEASE put your info in the Room sheet document, that way you can claim your stake!
@Len It'll depend on how many people end up being in the room. The split price listed takes into account that 6 people would be staying in the room, so keep that in mind. Once we start closing in on the date of the con, I'll give a final payment amount due for everyone, so it could be as follows:
1 (FOREVER ALONE): $200 ea.2: $100 ea.3: $65 ea.4: $50 ea.5: $45 ea. (bed), $20 ea. (floor)6: $40 ea. (bed), $20 ea. (floor)
0 · January 14, 2013
Alright, updated the Room sheet list with my room information. I haven't ACTUALLY gotten the room yet, but as soon as I get responses, I will purchase the rooms officially as we get closer to the con date.
As far as a ride, I am still interested in anyone offering an Anaheim pickup. If not, I may organize something myself as it gets closer to the con date.
1 · January 10, 2013
I might try my luck with the carpool/room sharing. I'm 18, I already have a ticket (I hate you Thunderlane) and Omnipony is going to be there. A very strong combination in favor of me going.
0 · December 31, 2012
Buck you I wanna go too! >^>"""
It's your fault that I got the ticket that I now might actually be able to use
Well at least they /let/ you! :<
0 · January 3, 2013
Because they're awesome, durr
0 · January 5, 2013
I'm going to do my best to go! It'd be really fantastic to make it, and even more so if certain plans go through! Kinda relying on a friend(s), but I'm hoping it'll work out!
0 · January 4, 2013
It is a very firm maybe. It will depend on a lot of things, but I'm gonna try!
